The “coming soon Avenue Scoop” sign has been teasing ice-cream hungry Bella Vistans for what seems like years. Was this place ever going to open or was it a front for nefarious activities behind those closed doors? Well, soon has arrived.
|Avenue Scoop, 932 E. Passyunk Ave.|
On Saturday (just in time for a winter cold snap) the doors of Avenue Scoop (932 E Passyunk Ave) were finally open and the only thing nefarious going on inside was the ice cream’s siren call to tempt the newly resolved.

There are plans for open mic nights, DJs and perhaps even live opera (a young opera singer works there). It seems all the baristas here have artistic talents, Gabi Moyer, will be curating monthly showings of local artists and Randy Vale is responsible for the chalk artwork and signage. Also check out the owner’s bobble head collection in the back!

A website is in the works and the menu and hours will be updated according to the season, but find them on Facebook here.
